“…We may, at times, think we are in control of our DESTINY…but wait….”

Set-back or Set-up?  Set-backs, injuries, failures, losses…ALL…are part of the progressive steps through life.  God has a plan for you, me, for each us. He has our number.  God is preparing us…always…for “our future.”  Are we listening, watching, or being patient?  God’s timetable and ours are not equitable.  God’s POA (plan of action) for us, is mapped out for our entire future.  There will be many steps…miss-steps, giant-steps, baby-steps, right-turns, left-turns, a degree here, or there.  Our entire life is a process of events, designed solely and entirely by God.  We may, at times, think we are in control of our DESTINY…but wait.  We’ve been down that road before, and just as we think we are in control…God will show us different.  God WILL get our attention.  There are no-shortcuts and no-easy-streets; but we are guaranteed an adventure like no other.  Most of our difficulties, are us, “wrestling with God,” as to who is in control.  It’s no different than what Moses had to contend with in guiding the Children of Israel to the Promised Land.  They kept fighting against Moses, and therefore God…. Just as we do today, on an individual, and a collective basis.  In fact; likely, that is the same thing that we’re doing as a Nation today….wrestling with God.  These, seemingly, are Setbacks, but they’re NOT set-backs, rather, it’s God SETTING-UP for SuccessGenesis 50:20 – As for you, you meant evil against me, but God meant it for good, to bring it about that many people should be kept alive, as they are today.  …Blessings…cjlb…2/24/14
